Rhythm and Shifting Our Perception | David Alderdice | TEDxPaonia

13/04/2016 16:00:03

How can understanding rhythm shift our perceptions of ourselves and the world? In this riveting talk Ethno-musicologist David Alderdice uses a mulltipercussion instrument and engages the audience to demonstrate how poly-rhythms, the simultaneous use of one or two conflicting rhythms, can help us break free from the habit of seeing things from only one angle. Rhythm can be powerful ally in our lives!

Video produced by Jay Canode & David Jacobson
Intro animation by Adam Smith
Intro music “So Good To Be True” by Host Bodies

David Alderdice is a father, percussionist, educator, recording artist, performer, enthusiastic rhythmist, and founder of the Embodying Rhythm School of Percussive Arts as well as co‐founder of the North Fork Valley Embodying Rhythm Marimba Project.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
